not that familiar with the education act. google is spending a significant amount of money to see we can do better. what the big frustration is what we talk about education but many of the other social problems that we talked about, when you see that there is such a dramatic technological change and we have not done anything to abandon our educational system. we can see is their ways that we can use these ongoing on-line resources to reach kids and get them to think beyond, to do that type was of things to introduce them to worlds beyond our borders. there are opportunities to shake things up and to cut some of the costs by allowing kids to enter world's and realms of the have never been allowed to enter before through technology and we need to spend more time figuring out how we change that paradigm if we know it. particularly for the pre-k through high-school. how can we learn better based on what we know today? >> let me try two more before we open it up to questions. warren buffett says tax rates do not matter as much as a lot of people pretend when it comes to companies and investment and inn

. microsoft, 87% of its cash. cisco. oracle at 80%. apple at 68%. google at 64%. that's important to note. the reason why these companies have so much cash overseas is that they've been global growth stories. when microsoft sells product overseas the proceeds go into accounts over there. don't come to the u.s. unless microsoft needs to buy something here. you can see it plays out in a company like apple, too, where international launches and international retail expansion have become far more important than the u.s. where growth is concerned. just five years ago apple had 58% of its cash in the u.s. this is actually a big issue for a company like cisco where john chambers has been very straightforward about saying if the federal government lets us repay treeuate this cash, bring it to the u.s. without a big penalty, we'll use it to hire and grow in this country. if not we'll hire less and, by the way, keep making bigger overseas acquisitions, too. all of this gets a bit dicier when you consider a lot of u.s. companies have gotten pretty good at avoiding tax on international sales by using

had intel or google or the host of companies because many of those founders to graduate from american universities would not have been allowed to stay. as terry sullivan mentioned, are billed as a variety of things. the two most important is start with the lowest hanging fruit, those not undergraduate degrees but graduate degrees, master's and ph.d.'s, in science, technology, engineering, and math -- clearly identified 96 disciplines in that category -- and say if you graduate and have a job awaiting you in america, we will give you a green card. dish should be the most basic of common sense. the remarkable thing is these jobs, which now in the global economy can be anywhere in the world, bring with them not only the high paying high skilled jobs, but many times several it is larry support jobs. if your an engineer, you need a lab technician. that is part one. part 2, everybody agrees with the first, but we get a few disagreements sometimes on the second, which is to revise the antiquated visa policies. those folks who have been lucky enough to get through the visa maze to stay in thi
